Based on what everyone one has said I am betting mine will be the headache- I am prone to them with PMT.
Marttc- I hope you have a BFP soon. Sounds like you went through a very hard time. We are having ICSI too.

I didn't have many side effects even though I overstimulated. The bloating was bad, I think I had about two weeks of it during all of my cycles. Just make sure you have some loose fitting clothes

The only side effect I had was bloating with hyperstimulation (I had all the risk factors for it - fairly young, small build, PCOS), which suddenly got worse because I was pregnant and the pregnancy hormones make it worse! I looked 4 months pregnant the day I found out I was pregnant. Apart from that, I didn't really have any other issues. I just drank heaps of powerade for the bloating

Best of luck to you fortitude! I'm sure all the drugs react to everyone differently, so you may have to see how you go. You might be lucky and breeze through
I've done 2 full stim cycles and just done a medicated frozen cycle. I found the FSH injections (gonal and puregon) gave me terrible headaches as well as nausea, more as they went along. By about 2 or 3 every arvo, i'd have a massive headache/miagraine. I also take metformin for pcos so that contributes to nausea. I was pretty lucky, EPU was almost pain free, was mega bloated before and after, but it went down slowly. I found the crinone (progesterone gel after your transfer) to be very bad, made me get horrible headaches and feel really depressed, nasty stuff! I'm currently taking estradoil and progesterone and i do feel pretty nauseous most days and get headaches. Pretty much feel similar to being hungover all the time. I think i get the side effects more than most.
That actually all sounds pretty yukky, but you might be lucky and breeze through! Just take it one day at a time and rest and take time out where you need to. Ivf is tough! Good luck

I forgot! I posted a photo of how bloated I got during my last IVF cycle on my blog. I just tried to paste it into this response but it won't work (probably too big lol).
Anyway, it's on page two - I usually have a flat stomach :-)
